Grandma’s Old Fashioned Au Gratin Potatoes

This is an old family favorite recipes for au gratin potatoes.  My Grandma used to make them and they would quickly disappear.  There were no seconds as everyone took very generous helpings on the first round!


  • 8 to 10 medium potatoes, cooked and chilled with skins on
  • ¼ pound butter
  • 1 pint half and half
  • ¼ pound cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Parmesan cheese
  • celery seed, salt, pepper

Shred peeled potatoes. Butter a 9×13 inch pan and put half of the potatoes in pan. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and celery seed. Next, add all of shredded cheese. Put another layer of potatoes, salt, pepper, and celery seed. Cover generously with Parmesan cheese.

Heat half and half with butter and pour over potatoes. Bake @ 350 degrees for 1 to 1 ½ hours.
